MASKS The Patch will require all customers to wear a face covering when entering the store beginning Wednesday, 7/15/20. Proper face coverings include face masks, face shields or other hands-free face coverings.
We offer delivery & pickup as an accommodation for those who are unable to wear a face covering due to an exemption. We have face masks & shields for purchase in case you forgot yours at home.
DELIVERIES & STOCKING Our shelves are pretty well-stocked and we have been getting regular deliveries. Our amazing team has been doing their very best to keep the shelves stocked & serve you the very best that they can.
SOCIAL DISTANCING While in the store, we ask that you please use social distancing. We have tape that is measured 6 feet apart at our registers, and we ask that customers please use that tape as a guide to ensure the safety of other customers & team members.
ONE WAY AISLES We also have one way aisles and ask that you please comply with these signs in order to help with social distancing.
PLEXIGLASS In order to help protect team members & customers, we have plexiglass up at our registers and misc. areas throughout both locations.
PLEASE BE COURTEOUS to our team members during this difficult time. We could all use a little positivity. A little bit of kindness REALLY goes a long way, especially these days! ❤️ Please feel free to add your love in the comments on our social media & we’ll make sure our team members hear every word!

STAY UP-TO-DATE Our customers & team members’ health & well-being is our main concern. The Patch is closely monitoring the situation & will be re-evaluating on an ongoing basis & will provide updates via our e-mails (you can sign up here).
We know that there are articles about the lack of supply with some meat & seafood distributors. Our commitment to you is to keep our community fed while meeting our strict standards. The Patch’s meat & seafood supplies have not been affected by the pandemic.
We work with local companies who are well-stocked & we are still receiving regular deliveries. In fact, we have lots of Springer Mountain Farms all-natural chicken at both or our locations and will continue to receive normal deliveries. We are here for you during this time.
We also have an ample supply of our local supplier of pasture raised birds, Olivor Heritage Farms. We have an ample supply of Australian & local Adena Farms grass-fed beef and all-natural, no antibiotic Creekstone Farms and Seaboard Foods beef & pork. We have an ample supply of Australian and domestic lamb, and all-natural, nitrate and nitrite free lunch meat, cheese and bacon from Applegate, Garrett Valley Farms, Boar’s Head, Niman Ranch and others. And of course, only the freshest wild and sustainably farm-raised seafood, delivered 6 times a week by local seafood distributors Sammy’s Seafood Retail Market and Wholesale in St. Pete and Gulf Coast Seafood Florida in Gulfport.
